Virtual machines for Windows Mobile development

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 6-Sep-2007 11:47

In a couple of weeks time I will be speaking at the Microsoft Partners Conference here in Auckland, New Zealand. The session topic will be what's new on Windows Mobile 6, and why companies should invest now in their mobility capabilities.

As suggested by Darryl I will demo something with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

Did you know you can download virtual machines with Visual Studio 2008 already installed and ready to use? I am downloading it now, and also downloading the Windows Mobile 6 SDK.

There's only one thing though: there are no frigging Windows Mobile 6 devices in New Zealand yet!

Believe it or not, Telecom New Zealand has just released the HTC Titan, and it's running Windows Mobile 5! And Vodafone New Zealand has not moved to release the promised Treo 750v update yet, although I have been told it's close, as well as an update for the v1210 Windows Mobile Smartphone. Vodafone also have plans to release a brand new Windows Mobile 6 device as soon as October.

I will be doing a demo, but using a device with a "test" ROM.
